During the interview, he made it clear that he thinks nobody is higher on Randy Orton than him and believes the former WWE Champion is the top guy in WWE right now.
Orton just lost to Edge after a lengthy feud that ended in a Last Man Standing Match at WrestleMania 36.
“I think, right now, he is doing some of the best work he has ever done and I think Edge is too. Randy has done and accomplished so much and he’s been there a long time – people don’t realize this. But every time he says something, it’s the truth. And his level of ability right now and his health are both great. He’s at the top of his game, which, in my opinion, makes him the number one guy.
Flair continued by noting that, “The thing about Randy is, he’s so good that I think just because he’s been there for so long you think ‘gosh, can he get any better?’ and he just continues [to get better] if given the opportunity to shine.”
Flair jokingly stated that he hopes Orton retires soon so he can get his third ring. This was a reference to being part of Evolution and being inducted into the Hall of Fame again. Flair added that Orton is a great talent and an important part of WWE’s TV.
Flair also talked about how he considers his daughter, Charlotte Flair, the best female star in WWE and the female version of Orton. You can read the entire interview here.
